This week will be absorbed by preparations for the coming Medical Mission group. Expect short blogs! Today we drove up to Comasagua to meet with the women who will be preparing lunch for us each day. We met in the bakery of a cooperative coffee finca, surrounded by the delicious smell of budín (I think that's probably a version of the English word pudding) - it's a very moist cake, a bit like a bread pudding, flavored with vanilla and cinnamon, and several big trays of budín came out of the oven as we sat and talked about menus and numbers. Then, at the end of our meeting, the baker, Ana Maria, gave each of us a large slice of budín, still warm from the oven, for the drive back to the city. We're going to eat well!
